Everybody has heard of the Placebo effect – the ability of the mind to heal through simple belief (from the Latin for “I will please”).
Well, it has a dark side, an ability to cause physical harm purely through suggestion – this is called the Nocebo effect (from the Latin for “I will harm”).
This week’s show is Placebo – Nocebo: War of the Worlds,
MKUltra, Mass mind control and a veritable smorgasbord of related topics are discussed and we finish the show with following question for you:
